Ents,

I feel the need to provide our newer members with an explanation of what's just happened.  We are usually pretty laid back here on the BBS, and for the most part, stay away from contentious topics. We want to keep it that way, but it wasn’t always so. In the past, we strayed into controversial subjects. During one period, our discussions were dominated by topics that had no connection to the NTS mission whatsoever. A couple of very strong voices were pushing Massachusetts forestry issues, and one in particular, was championing the emerging biomass market. That person became increasingly disruptive and personal, and for those reasons, Ed Frank kicked him off the BBS. That individual’s attempt to hijack the BBS and turn it into a forestry bitch platform taught us all a lesson. I am not particularly pleased with my role in what happened during that period. It was through me that that contentious voice was invited onto the BBS. It’s a long story. Live and learn.

Thanks Bob and Ed... I appreciate the historical background.. As you're aware, the contentious content is quite common on many forums.. With the exception of the "crap" Ed refers to, the diversity of thoughts, opinion, background, etc., is remarkably educational, particularly to this ents-bbs noob who's career strayed from a first love of forestry into geology and groundwater..
That said, I have a tall coffee in one hand, a box of G-Scout cookies (Thin Mints) in the other, and refuse to shovel the driveway, so I'm looking forward to reading more...
Best wishes,
Bob

Good evening Patty, I think I encountered it on this site while cruising the Art, Aesthetics, etc., categories... I'm fairly confident a specific reference could be found if entered into a Google search... In fact, now I'm curious... I'll give it a try and send you an email... Say hello to Pete for me...
